Excellent climbing shoe for multi-pitch or warmup. Extremely comfortable for long periods of time. The shoe is quite stiff, but not as stiff as TC Pros. Sizing is typical for Scarpa, which is true to actual size and doesn't seem adjusted for the tightness of climbing shoes. The tensioned rand works as Scarpa says, so the heel is relaxed when the foot is, and tightens when standing on the toes. Stretch is virtually non-existent lengthwise and typical for a leather shoe along the width. Only major improvement this shoe could use is a speed lacing system. Ignore the negative review given previously, it seems that it came from someone who didn't even know he was buying climbing shoes.

Great boots. I've had Lowa, Raichle, Danner, White's, Russell, Merrell, and others and these are as good or better than all. They're rigid enough for rock and steep stuff but still comfortable. Took just a couple days of mild walking around to break in.

PROS: Soft leather makes for a comfy fit that flexes to your foot/toe shapes. Comfortable overall. CONS: Slightly shapeless look; looks a little more like a sock than a shoe when wearing. Also doesn't offer much lateral support/stability because of this. Partial-white outsole is an odd choice, as it will get filthy immediately with use (why not all-black outsole?).

I bought these boots two years ago and used them for trail hiking, biking, and everyday walking practically every single day, year-round in temperatures as low as -45 in Yellowknife (NWT). They are perfect in all kinds of weather, winter as well as long as one stays very active. They are the most comfortable and versatile boots I ever owned and they are well worth the price.

I returned to Zappos.com because I was interested in purchasing this footwear. I am very pleased with the product the comfort and the fit.

I got these shoes in advance of a trip to Northern Italy where we were planning to do quite a bit of hiking and via ferrata. These shoes were great for those outdoor activities, weren't super heavy, and required no break-in. I've really enjoyed that they're sort of a cross between a hiking boot and a climbing shoe.

I bought these as winter boots, which means, in NYC, that I have been wearing them pretty much every day for the past 10 weeks. They're great. While they have definitely gotten more comfortable with use, they were fine from the first time I put them on. They're light and stay warm and completely dry. They lace up quickly, and there is enough give in the lacing system to adjust to thick socks, thin socks, insoles, etc. It's like your feet are encased in warm, fluffy clouds.

First off I ordered this shoe because I liked the style and now that I have it, I love the style. I normally wear a size 10.5 (44) and that is what I ordered. I should have heeded the advice of other reviewers, as I did return it and exchange for a size 11 (44.5) and it fits fantastic. Like other reviewers, the shoe insert is rather minimal. I have now tried on the shoe with various commercial inserts, but ended up liking a "just above minimal" insert that I took out of a pair of my running shoes...and voila...perfect. Also of note. I called Zappos about the fit problem and they ordered the larger size and set up the exchange process. I had the new size two days later. It worked very slick and I was most impressed with the Zappos response (hence the company name maybe?). All in all I really like the shoe and dealing with Zappos.

These are cool shoes and the color is very versatile. I'm a drummer and bought these specifically for gigging. They are great to play in and I always feel hip when I have them on. They are also very well made. I originally ordered these in my normal size based on the majority of reviews that said "true to size." They looked small out of the box and were definitely snug so I went a half size larger. I prefer shoes to fit on the small side anyway and after I wore the larger size for awhile I felt that maybe I'd made the wrong choice and re-ordered the 1/2 size smaller. Definitely still too small.

These are the greatest shoes! I bought them for travels in Europe, to have a shoe for hiking but could wear with shorts or a skirt if need be. I am since home and wear them for all of my workouts, including my fitness martial art class, hiking, sometimes even running. I can wear them all day and evening and my feet never get tired! They are the best fitting walking/hiking/exercise shoe I have ever purchased. I love the yellow color, different! And the look of the shoe is a bit European so I fit in a bit better while traveling. I get endless compliments on them and have passed the name on to many people. Don't ever stop making them! I am glad to see other colors offered now too. Run, don't walk to buy a pair, you won't regret it!

Wanted something a little more lightweight and flexible than a traditional approach shoe and this is perfect for that. The sole is cushioned enough so you don't beat yourself up on a long descent, but not so much that they make you unstable when carrying a heavy pack on rocky terrain. I've gone running in these and would not recommend them for that, but for anything from heavy pack approaches to day hiking in the summer time they're great.

I own several pairs of non-climbing Scarpa. These are great cold-weather urban and rural walking/hiking shoes. I hope this won't be my only pair because they really last and take punishment.

These boots are gorgeous. I'm a female with big feet so I was very excited to find these boots. I bought mine because they are waterproof. I am not going to hike or do anything super active in these boots, but they have amazing grip and keep me on my feet in the slush. The ankle support is really good too. The one complaint I have so far, is that they aren't even a little bit insulated. My toes become frozen in just a few minutes, even with thicker socks on.

I wear 9.5 American and the Euro size 43 fits fine. Shoe is of moderate width but I can cinch it up snug on my very narrow foot w/ provided lacing. Fits comfy w/o break-in.

Comfortable right out of the box. Great styling - this is scarpa's sneaker with a hiking boot style. Don't expect much in the way of traction, the sole is relatively smooth. Perfect for walking around in colder weather.

Exceptional fit and finish with these sharp looking sneakers. Works well with jeans or khakis. Solid feeling shoes. Well made. Took a few wears for them to break in, but no discomfort during that period, rather they felt a bit stiff at first. Now they are really comfortable. My first pair in this brand but won't be my last. Not inexpensive but worth the price in my view.

Versatile footwear for active people who appreciate quality. The Epic performs admirably at whatever job its wearer gives it. Well constructed; attention was paid to how this shoe envelops the foot. A solid platform overall.

This is my second pair of these shoes, and frankly they are so hard wearing, I find I'm still using the original pair for the weekends. Think of these shoes as an upscaled chuck, which are perfectly at home in smart casual office settings, but which also have the grunt and build to get you through a long commute in any weather, on street or trail. I applied one coat of water proofing to the uppers last year, and they still look great. Size runs true. If you like their understated style, these babies won't disappoint.

Very good approach show. I'm using it mainly for scrambling class 3. Excellent grip on bolder and steep slopes. This is my second pair, I use the first one quite intensively. Shoe is comfortable, however it hurts if you wear it for more than 2-3 hours hiking unless you loose up the strings.

My husband loves his Scarpa hiking boots, so we thought these would be great for casual wear. He liked everything about them, except in just wearing them around the house, he found them to be very hot and not at all breathable (not usually a problem for him). Unfortunately, we had to send them back.

Great boots! My oldest son has had Scarpa hiking boots for 3-4 years and he loves them. Purchased these for another son for Christmas. Great quality, very comfortable. The color is rather light but I suspect that they will darken over time.
